21.30, mean was 26.12, standard deviation was 2.20, median was 27 and mode was 27.while pre-test attitude
range was 43.55, mean was 50.04, standard deviation was 2.83 and median was 51.and post-test level of
attitude, 49(98%) had favourable attitude, 1 (2%) had moderately favourable attitude and none of them had
unfavourable. The maximum score was 30, mean was 11.38, standard deviation was 2.47 and paired t-test
